I took this picture a couple of days ago after a relative heavy frost. Most of the flowers in my neck of the woods have bloomed early and the foliage is showing the effects for their early exuberance. The frosts are taking their toll but the flowers beauty still shows through. My life feels a little bit weather tested itself.
Do not get me wrong personally things are not great but I have had worse. It is just right now I am burden for several great friends and a few not so greats. And at this point I do not have the means, nor the gas in my tank, to make a great impact on their burdens. This made me stop, pause and breath in and come to the realization that being here, striving through their struggles is truly what is important.
